Alas, despite the fact that you raised an important issue in a vitally important way, the reason you have only a few people clapping for the article is that you were not likeable. You see we have a *likeable culture. You violated those norms. You raised an issue from the past. You dared to challenge cultural norms. You were a woman challenging men. Don’t do that, because that always sounds like whining and complaining. You should be listening to them. They want to tell you about how you said it wrong. You know, in an adversarial way, like Joe Biden did with Anita Hill in her testimony during the hearings.

*This has been defined by recent Medium articles. You’ll find that people who write social justice articles in general violate likeability standards
